Re: MythTV artwork incorrect

Advice I've got. Solutions are another story (not a Kodi user and as you probably know, Kodi isn't a MythTV product.) It sounds more like you're getting previews. I'm guessing that Kodi uses the MythTV Services API. You can prove this by increasing the logging on a running backend with: mythbackend ...

Re: tv_grab_zz_sdjson_sqlite not creating config file

There's a match for the error on the SD forum, but no solution. https://forums.schedulesdirect.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3095&p=10143 Haven't had/heard of the error myself. Looks like in mythtv-setup, you've got three Video sources named: 'FIOS All Channels' , 'FIOS Clear' and SchedulesDirect. Which s...

Re: Cannot get frontend to connect

I'm guessing that this will show a difference:

Code: Select all

diff /etc/mythtv/config.xml /home/scott/.mythtv/config.xml
Fix the broken link with:

Code: Select all

rm /home/scott/.mythtv/config.xml
sudo ln -s /etc/mythtv/config.xml /home/scott/.mythtv/config.xml

The output of this (on the remote fromtned) please:

Re: Cannot get frontend to connect

The above guarantees that only connections to the DB from the localhost (your backend) will be accepted. Remove the leading # (comment). I don't recall if mysql must be restarted for it to take affect. If so: sudo systemctl stop mythtv-backend.service sudo systemctl restarat mysql sudo systemctl sta...

Re: Cannot get frontend to connect

I'd verify that the DB server allows connections from a remote IP.
The location of that file may be different if MariaDB is used or on
Mint itself.

Code: Select all

$ cat /etc/mysql/conf.d/mythtv.cnf
[mysqld]

Re: Cannot get frontend to connect

From host 'MythtvIon', can you connect to the DB using the credentials in "configuration directory = /root/.mythtv"? You're running the frontend as user root. Odd, as most run as their login user, but it can work. mysql --user=mythtv --password --host=192.168.0.30 mythconverg That takes MythTV out o...

Re: Spurious "encoders" reported by mythbackend

https://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VBox#Multirecord explains one reason. Which
won't explain it if you don't user VBox.

In the DB, the cardid column in the capturecard table is set to auto_increment, so
the values will always go up.

Re: Database address update

Yes, MYTHCONFDIR isn't in play. Just covering my bases.

Just responded on the -users list about the broken link above. And asked for a
retest of the mysql command.

Probably better to stay -users list, not the Forum too.
